The aircraft touched down about a quarter of the way down the airstrip and bounced. As there was an insufficient length of runway remaining to bring the aircraft to a halt, the pilot commenced a go-around. The subsequent takeoff was made at 55 knots, but the aircraft's wheels collided with a bank at the end of the strip. The pilot then turned the aircraft to the left, towards a small clear paddock, but the left wing struck a small tree, causing the aircraft to cartwheel.
